PROFESSIONAL - - My clients tell me what sets me apart is my flair for capturing their personality, genuinely and artistically. Whether I’m photographing their family or creating their headshot, they are amazed not only with the extent I’ll go to elicit something special about them, but how I make it “fun” and “painless.” I think what they sense is that I am not so much passionate about photography as I am about people. I am a Master Photographer and Photographic Craftsman. I am a member of the American Society of Photographers and the Photography Hall of Fame and Museum, where my recreation of Georges Seurat’s “La Grande Jatte” was installed alongside Ansel Adams in the museum. Only a relative few artists, worldwide, have been inducted as a permanent exhibitor. In addition to being named O.C. Photographer of the Year, I am also an eleven time recipient of the coveted International Loan Collection Award. Prominent organizations such as Professional Photographers of America, Norway, Germany, Kodak, Fuji, and EPCOT Center (three time honoree in the “World’s Greatest Photographers” exhibit) have honored my work. My photographs adorn the living spaces of world renowned individuals, including musicians, authors, actors, leaders and royalty. As impressive as our national and international recognition might be, what’s vastly more important is that every single honor and award that I have ever earned has come directly from commissioned portraits. That is to say, I owe my success to my clients; it all began with simple inquiries such as yours and continues today because of those who honor me with their trust. - - COMMERCIAL - - In addition to family portraits, we create headshots for businesses and the arts.

Kari was assigned to my classroom as a student teacher (it’s not a saucy as it sounds). We were married in 1989 and managed to create three independent children (now nearly grown). Kari, as you may have noticed, is not only my wife, but the Studio Manager at Mark Jordan Photography. Kari also serves as our portrait studio’s “master puppeteer” and is my right hand woman in our family and children portraits. When we’re not creating studio photography we can be found around town at local eateries, on the greens, at the movies, Yogurtland, and Saddleback Church. - - INTERESTS - - In no particular order of preference: Music – Art – Golf – Movies/Theater – Guitar/Bass – Ceramics – Baseball – Stained Glass – Travel – Wordle® Puzzles - Reading – Psychology – Politics – Tropics – Dining – Belly Art - - QUOTES - - When your vision is clear, the decision is easy. - If you want to be loved, be lovable. - Deal with the faults of others as gently as with your own. - The road to a friend’s house is never long. - Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass – it’s about learning to dance in the rain. - As always, should you have questions regarding any aspect of About Mark Jordan Photography, no concern is too small. -
